Life Styled | How to Do Two Easy Holiday Hairstyles (The Lazy Leia and Hippie Bardot)
We’ve baked. We’ve partied. We’ve shopped. We’ve traveled. By the time Christmas and New Year’s Eve actually roll around, we’re pretty exhausted from the preparations and functions that preempt the holidays. But that’s not going to stop us from trying our best to be picture ready.
Thanks to Hana Schaplow, a stylist at Seattle’s Coupe Rokei salon, we now have two easy, do-it-yourself hairstyles to take out with our party dresses. Hana gave the two looks pretty clever names based on the level of skill and time required to accomplish them, and the iconic ladies that inspired them. These soft styles are relaxed enough for any event but will definitely help put the trim on your festive look.
Add extra hairpins with some sparkle to complete the look. We chose by Tasha.
The Lazy Leia
It’s a loose braid bun on just one side of the head.
Apply a hair volumizer to your roots. Create soft shape around your face.
Add a dangly earring for an accent. Pictured here, Alexis Bittar’s Miss Havisham encrusted tassel drop earrings.
